The ROSEN Group announced that it has joined the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, which was launched by the European Commission last July as part of the EU strategies for energy system integration and hydrogen. 

In a statement, ROSEN said, “As a company committed to helping operators of industrial assets prepare for the future, ROSEN supports engaged stakeholders of the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance in managing the safe introduction of hydrogen into Europe’s transmission and distribution network. Subject matter expertise in asset integrity and appropriate inspection technologies make the company an ideal partner for asset operators across the hydrogen value chain.  

“The ROSEN Group contributes a holistic hydrogen integrity framework to the alliance to provide a roadmap for the safe and efficient conversion of existing gas infrastructure to hydrogen in order to extend the lifetime of valuable assets into a carbon neutral future.”
